I've just reinstalled XP and SP2.When I try to remove EN from the taskbar and change the view (list,icons,etc) of any folders the changes stay in effect until the next time the computer is booted up.Then everything goes back to defaults. I'm signed on as administrator and there is only one user account. I've reinstalled exactly as on previous occasions. Anyone know what causes this or have I not pressed a button somewhere.
Inn case I misunderstood and you don't want all the folders the same, do the same action as I stated above, but don't click the Apply button. Scroll down and there is an option box "Remember each folder's view settings". Make sure that box is ticked.
FelixTcat thx folder views now ok. VoG thx saved your link for future reference. EN still comes back in the language bar even though I untick it. It's not a problem but I just wonder why it's happening. It didn't before the reinstall and doesn't on my other computer. Any further suggestions?
Have you tried right clicking on EN Settings and in the Preferences section click on Language Bar. Then make sure Show the Language Bar on the desktop is unchecked. I know it is only another way of doing what you were doing but you never know, it may stick this way??
